Dr. Quagliata received her DVM from VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine she was awarded an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at NYC's Animal Medical Center. Following her intern training Dr. Quagliata accepted a position as an associate veterinarian at the West Village Veterinary Hospital where she worked for almost 6 years. During this time she developed special interests in kidney disease, gastrointestinal disease, general surgery and pain management. In 2006 she received her acupuncture certification from the Chi Institute in Gainesville, Florida. In 2010, Dr. Quagliata started her own house call practice where she takes the integrative approach to her medicine.
Some other special services that Dr. Quagliata provides in addition to acupuncture include health certificates (USDA certified), microchip administration and surgery (in hospital).
A friend highly recommended Dr. Quagliata to me and I had a fantastic experience with her. She was exceptional on so many levels so I had to spread the word. When I first met her and her assistant, I was so impressed by her professionalism. She is very confident and for good reason. I had a lot of questions about my dog and she was so knowledgable and was willing to take the time and explain everything to me in laymens terms. My dog had been drinking too much water for a while and Dr. Q knew exactly what was wrong based on some other issues my dog had been having. Bloodwork confirmed that Dr. Q was correct and now that he is on the right medicine all of his skin problems and infections completely resolved! Dr. Q was also very gentle and sweet with my older cat! Usually my cat freaks out with strangers but she was fine with Dr. Q and her assistant. My cat has very bad dental disease and Dr. Q recommended that I take her to have a dental with the only board certified veterinary dentist in NYC, Dr. Riback, at the AMC. Ever since my cat had a couple of teeth pulled she is feeling so much better and has much more energy. Every interaction I have had with Dr. Q makes me confident that she knows what is best for my pets and really cares.
Experienced and reliable! Since we moved to the city several years ago, we have had multiple pets under the care of Dr. Q. We have been extremely impressed with her compassion and her novel approach to our pets' well-being.
Our dog Mckenna has been suffering from debilitating arthritis and allergies for years. Dr. Q took a hands-on personal approach and found that McKennas issues were a direct result of suboptimal nutrition.
She took the time to educate us on how to improve McKenna's diet and exercise regimen.
Overall, what sets Dr. Q apart from other providers is her reliability, trustworthiness and most-importantly individualized approach to animal care.
Thanks Dr. Q!!!
Nice but..... – Dr. Quagliata was very nice so I hate to write this review but I do not want someone to have the same terrible experience I had. It was very convenient to use Dr Quagliata to give our pets shots at home and we enjoyed using her for this. But if your dog has a real issue I would highly recommend taking your pet to a more experienced vet. My dog had a hole leaking puss on his face which 20 mins of internet research ultimately revealed was an abscesed 4th premolar. Dr. Quagliata originally mistook the hole for a blemish and after it didn't go away she sent me to the AMC to have my dogs teeth cleaned and have X-rays done to determine the problem. She highly recommended Dr. Riback - Dr. Riback at the AMC charged me $1400 to clean my dogs teeth and remove 6 teeth - but they did not remove the tooth that was causing the problem! I think Dr. Quagliata should not have sent me to the most expensive place in the whole city to get this done and she should have made sure they pulled out the right tooth. Also, after reading the reviews, I found out the AMC is notorious for "ripping people off" After the hole did not heal, Dr. Quagliata and the AMC insisted it was highly unlikely the 4th premolar was the problem. I spoke to 3 other experienced vets who said the opposite - it was likely the 4th premolar. I had the 4th premolar removed and the problem went away immediately. One of the vets I consulted with after parting ways with Dr. Quagliata and the AMC said this in an email that I think sums the situation up nicely - "Care of an abscessed tooth is not rocket science and it doesn't generally require a specialist unless something is very amiss. A veterinarian should not mistake a tooth root abscess for a "blemish" if they have been in practice a number of years." Unfortunately, Dr. Quagliata was too inexperienced to help me in this situation and my dog had to suffer. It also cost me a lot of money $2500 for something that should have cost about $800.
Fantastic Doggy Bed-Side Manner – Dr. Quagliata and her assistant came to see my 12 year-old chihuahua mix last night for the first time. She was instantly at ease and took to them both within minutes. Carolyn did a tremendous job of handling "P" during her examination and blood draw. I was especially impressed when Dr. Quagliata called in my dog's prescription on the spot and her assistant went to pick it up for me before the drug store closed. A tremendous service!
Compassionate and caring – Dr. Quagliata cared for my 20 year old Persian during the last few months of her life. She provided extraordinary care. She responded quickly and compassionately to my concerns and helped guide me my cat's end of life. This was a highly emotional time for me as I had my cat since she was 8 weeks old. Dr. Quagliata's house call services enabled my cat to pass in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by those who loved her the most. She and her assistant were truly amazing, providing comforting words and thoughts as we said good-bye to a cherished family member. I highly recommend Dr. Quagliata.
Kind and patient vet – I have a four year old puggle who panics every time we visit our local vet. She often has to be restrained for simple procedures like vaccinations.
This year, I tried Dr. Quagliata. She was kind, patient, and gentle with my dog. She was able to give her annual health exam and several vaccinations (DHLP, Rabies, and Bordetella) without any trouble.
Our experience was much calmer and easier than visiting our regular veterinarian's office. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Quagliata and will definitely use her services in the future.
Incredible Service – I have a rottweiler and he's a big and heavy dog! He was really sick last week and I couldn't even get him to move to go to the vet. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Quagliata and told me that she comes to your home. I didn't even know a service like this existed in NYC! It was so convenient, and she was a life saver. She came right over and treated my dog. She was very patient and attentive to details. I was very impressed with her service that I am just going to keep her as my dog's primary vet. I recommend her to anyone who has a pet, she is phenomenal!
Great Vet – After a long battle with cancer I finally came to terms that my cat was on its last life. I wanted to put missy down in the comfort of her own home. After reading great reviews about Dr. Q i decided to use her. She was very compasionate and understanding about what i was going through and made the process seamless very easy. Thank you Dr.Q
Dog (and Owner's) Best Friend – Dr. Quagliata was referred to me by both a neighbor and a vet working in the clinic I used near my apartment. These are two major pluses when a vet recommends another and two separate people refer someone. She did not disappoint. Carolyn came to my house several times, which made my dog MUCH more comfortable than visiting a vet office. She was both professional and caring. My dog is 14 years old and obviously in need of some special care and attention, which is exactly what Dr. Quagliata provided. We started with acupuncture sessions and I quickly realized she should care for all of my pet's needs. She has taken the time to answer my calls whenever I am concerned and encourages me to continue do so. Truth is, she has been a godsend! I know my dog is in great hands which is more than I could ask for. Anybody that is considering Dr. Quagliata should not hesitate to call her. You will quickly feel the same way I do.
Great Vet – Oh the relief of not having to drag the cat to the vet's office anymore -- the anxiety of it all. Gone now that Dr. Q comes by. The convenience after years of stuffing our unhappy, uncooperative cat in her carrier can't be overstated, but what's even more exciting is Dr. Q herself. She is the consummate vet, gentle, professional, knowledgeable but with such a comfortable way about her, it's as if an old friend showed up in scrubs to give our cat a quick exam and a rabies shot. Turns out our cat does need medication. The matter was resolved in a few days -- a few e-mails, a single phone call and the meds arrived. Dr. Q is as conscientious as she is likeable. She's been by twice and her choice of assistants proves she's wise as well. Dr. Q was recommended by our vet's office and we're feeling very lucky they did.
